that solo performance of hidden lakes is amazing. Is that Jonathan's house?

OK, I got my vinyl copy today from Matador. Very excited! Now, I don't actually have my turntable set up at the moment, so I quickly grabbed the download. In the download there are 3 extra tracks. The first two we already know about, "Silver Bodies" and "False Sentinel." The third is track called "Anak Rekata." I'm wondering if this track appears (unlisted) on the vinyl in some way. I ask for the somewhat silly reason of wanting to have a vinyl running order playlist in my digital library. Anyone know anything about this track?

Thanks much! Now I'm going to sit down and soak in the album for the first time...

I haven't found ""Anak Rekata" on the LP.

It's an extra bonus track. It's not on the LP.

A bonus bonus track, you might say.

Also, the whole package for this is beautiful! I've been leafing through the mini-dossier for a while now.

The homepage says:

"We released a pair of videos for “Hidden Lakes” yesterday; you can find them here. But we also wanted to post an exclusive version of the video shot at JM’s house, in which he talks about the TGA and some of the travels that inspired it. If you look closely you can catch some footage of places featured in the album artwork."

... but all I found is the usual solo-performance, no talking or documentary... am I blind now?

Get more sleep!

You're either up too early or didn't go to bed.

Thanks for a great gig last night.

Comparing the track order for the vinyl and digital/CD I do not see any difference. I was under the assumption that it would be different. Not a big deal, just curious. It seams to me that Matador took the cheaper way out with the vinyl this time around. Both Palo Santo and Rook were nice heavy 2xLP's while this one is only a single 140 gram record. I wish they would have gone with a thicker jacket and vinyl with this release as well.

The immediate highs from the CD - Meridian, Black Eyes, Castaways, Hidden Lakes.

Then to the LP - I cannot see any reason why The Silver Bodies was excluded from the CD. The 2nd side makes so much more sense with it.

Favourites now are An Insular Life (superb live) and Missing Islands.

The criticisms - Corridors fulfills a purpose but is hard to truly love. Runners of the Sun needs to be twice as long, even if JM had run out of words.

The Massive disappointment - False Sentinel (halfway between Nick Drake and Tim Buckley), whilst rightly excluded from the main running order, is one of the very best Shearwater songs ever....UNTIL the drums come in! I feel a really physical sense of upset every time I listen to this. It could have been overwhelming, but the drums are just ridiculous to my ears. I don't suppose there is a mix anywhere without them?

Corridors I think is hard to love at first, just because it's kind of an odd piece, but I've really come to dig it. Pretty powerful and dramatic tune.

Rook is a single LP, and there are 2 extra songs on the LP as compared to the CD.
